hard to get us here. i want to thank those just once again, the secretary, for his willingness to think differently and look differently at this project. this project was dead many many times, but it was because of his willingness to look at this in a new light and consider things that previous secretaries of the navy had not considered because of the great work of his staff and both the department of defense and because, more importantly, of the incredible commitment, not just passing interest, speaker ned to pelosi, who started this thing through three presidential administrations, secretaries of navy, mayors like me that come and go, members of the board of supervisors, treasure island development authority that stuck it out for all this time. to nancy pelosi, thank you yet again. what a remarkable effort. you deserve an enormous amount of credit. we thank you. we are proud of you. this is a big deal. on top of that, hunters point, which was a big deal. trans a terminal, doyle drive, the bay bridge. this is just getting things done. it is my honor now to ask up to the podium a fan of

those. >> okay. >> there's no bag alternatively that is used for that. when you go to the grocery store, in -- this goes to the earlier comment i made about the alternative bag industry is not being allowed to enter the markets because forces are suppressing that. the produce bag when you go to get your vegetables and fruit at the grocery store, you take the plastic bag off the roller, we can't touch those either, because the cost of that hasn't come to a place where the alternative bag is as cheap, where we like it to be. >> okay. thank you. >> i wanted to thank you for doing this so the five cents stays with the retailer. not really for the money, making money but for the bookkeeping, the tracking. it is just another -- another time-consuming thing. and i know the small businesses really appreciate that. >> it is morlinnier like i said and we get it. we're happy to see the chamber being warm to this and newsom who was a supporter of this idea too. we're bringing people who had not been not ness -- not ness cecily of the same wave length earlier, this has been a real coming together, t

people are. i know a lot of people watch " 24" and jack bauer always knows where people are when they use their cell phone, and we can triangulate according to sell towers, but the fact is we really do not know where people are, so it becomes important that people are using cell phones to call in any emergency to save their location and know where they are. we have two things we're working on with 911, which is language, and also say your location if you are using a cell phone. very important. so we are working on education materials for that. in translation, it is interesting to note that of the calls we receive -- and we received close to 1,013,000 in 2009, which is approximately 3% of all the calls -- the top four language requiring translation were spanish, cantonese, mandarin, and russian. there's a big gap between cantonese and mandarin, and as we go down to russian. so the service has been working out well. important websites -- i want to draw your attention to the shakeout website again so you can register. want to draw your attention so you pass along to your employees and contin

recycling and composting programs, set aggressive goals, and keep us on track. without further delay, it is my pleasure to introduce mayor gavin newsom, who has some spectacular news. mayor newsom: i think this is the completion of your first week on the job. melanie was with the speaker's office doing similar work, so that we could be successful in san francisco and but in a position to make a lot of the announcements we have been making bore over the last number of years. i happen to think this is a big deal. i think that other cities across the country that struggle to deal with the issue of their diversion rates with landfills that are literally filling up, that are becoming floating regattas of landfills that are being pushed up and down rivers and across the coast and around the continent, that this represents an important milestone, the cities can think differently and act differently and do some of them substantially differently -- do something substantially differently as it relates to their waist. what we know, we do not think, is that 1 million to 1.5 million people are mo

not know how many times john burton wrote us about this, but we thank you for your persistence on this. let me just take a moment to thank the person that i have called one of the greatest secretaries of transportation, is not the greatest -- ray lahood. you need to know about this man. he knows i feel this way about him. when you called ray, you cannot make small talk, you just get to the point. he knew about this because i remember i was with him when we were announcing another grant. he said, don't worry, i know about the transbay terminal. in other words, you do not need to talk to me about it again. he is a hero to me because he showed that we can work across party lines. lord knows that we need to come up particularly in times like these. i want to thank one more group of people and then i will sit down. i want to thank the people in the state of california who voted for nearly $10 billion in state funds to support high speed rail. that is why our state is so great, because the people of the state. we are going to keep the state moving forward. thank you very much.

cocktail the state has used in the last 12 excuses. brown's attorney says they will ask a marin county superior court judge tomorrow to block the execution. they're also considering an appeal to the ninth u.s. circuit court of appeals. brown is convicted of murdering and raping a 15-year-old riverside county girl in 1980. >>> in a related development across the country, condemned inmates could get an unexpected reprieve from their death sentences to shortages of one of the three drugs used in the lethal injections. the governor of kentucky has been asked to sign death warrants for three inmates but the state can only set one execution date because the department of corrections has only one dose of sodium thiopental left. the only u.s. manufacturer of the drug says the active ingredient is back ordered. ohio and washington is are also facing delays. >>> san francisco is the latest spot to consider banning fast food restaurants from handing out free toys with kids meals. tomorrow the board of supervisors considers a plan that would not ban toys in kids outright but make it illegal for th

give us an update an overview, and to the extent that i understand we all understand this investigation, what you know and what you can share. >> [inaudible] i want to extend my condolences and my sympathy to all of those families that were impacted. [inaudible] basically, what we know at this point, and i think many of you have heard from various media, that there was a rush of 830- inch steel gas main transmission line that appears to be the cause of the incident. we are in the process of trying to report service both from electric as well as gas as safely and as quickly as possibly -- as we possibly can. last night we interrupted service here from a safety standpoint, working very closely in conjunction with various fire officials at the site last night. behind we have people who work through the night last night, and they are continuing to work today. they are performing the survey on both the transition system as well as the distribution system to insure that we can safely restore service to those who have been impacted. we have also been working very closely with red cross with ou
